1781.
This song, to the tune of Yankee Doodle, commemorating the campaign of Cornwallis in America, appeared soon after his surren­der. The author is unknown.
THE DANCE.1
Cornwallis led a country dance,
The like was never seen, sir, Much retrograde and much advance,
And all with G-eneral Greene, sir.
They rambled up and rambled down, Join'd hands, then off they run, sir,
Our General Greene to Charlestown, The earl to Wilmington, sir.
